How do we find answers to the everyday problems in Digital Dentistry?

In this session, Dr Joanne Choi, a senior lecturer from the University of Otago Faculty of Dentistry will present the summary of findings of the latest projects from her research lab. The talk will cover a wide range of 3D printing related topics and materials - from factors influencing the accuracy of 3D printed models to adhesion and post-curing of permanent 3D printed crowns and how the researchers find answers to the everyday problems in Digital Dentistry. Joanne will share evidence-based practical guidelines for 3D printing from past research and detail current research projects on digital dentistry, which will give valuable insights to any dental practitioner who uses digital technology at their practice!

14.15 - 15.00 • Session 5

Brave New World - 3D printed restorations - an imperfect solution in an imperfect world

With the rapid adoption of chairside 3D printers in many dental practices, 3D printed restorations are taking the world by storm. However, many are approaching this phenomenon with a healthy dose of skepticism. In this talk, we will go through the advantages and disadvantages of 3D printed restorations, how they are processed, where they sit in our current dental materials armamentarium and where developments in the field will take us from here.

Facial Scanners in Dentistry - Why bother and how to use them for maximum ROI

Face scanners are becoming more and more popular in dentistry. Let's go over the big question - WHY? What do they do? Dr Ahmad was one of the first users of the RayFace in ANZ. He has also used multiple handheld face scanners and iPhone apps. In this lecture, he will go over all the different options and explain why you should consider purchasing one in the first place. Learn what the point of a face scanner is, how to use it to improve case acceptance, and why it significantly reduces remakes of restorations.

14.15 - 15.00 • Session 4

Fast and Furious - where do innovative materials fit in our dental market?

Speed sintering zirconia, milling pre-sintered/pre-crystallised ceramics, printed ceramic restorations, graphene-based polymers, 3D printed mouthguards and more! The adoption of digital dentistry in many practices and labs has led to amazing developments in the materials we use today. However, why should we care when our current materials work just fine? Should we be fixing things when they aren't broken?

For every case the right solution – Prettau® Skin® technique and full arches on implants

Dental restorations can feature high aesthetics from a dental technical point of view. However, only after placement in the patient's mouth is it possible to define whether they truly meet the functional requirements. In this context, by showing real patient cases, DT Rian Barnard will illustrate the innovative Prettau® Skin® technique: Zirkonzahn intelligent solution for restoring patients’ smile with zero to minimal impairment of tooth substance using ultra-thin zirconia veneers (0.2 mm). Special attention will be also given to the production of full arches on implants.

11.45 - 12.30 • Session 3

Maximising Time Efficiency in 3D Printing

In the fast evolving landscape of digital dental technology, the ability to speed-up production without compromising quality is important. In this presentation, Charlie delves into innovative strategies and best practices for maximising time efficiency in dental 3D printing. He will explore cutting-edge techniques, material advancements, and workflow optimisation methods that promise to streamline operations and enhance productivity. Attendees will gain insight into practical solutions that can be applied to speed up the dental printing process, ensuring faster turnaround times while maintaining the highest standards of precision and a clean workspace. Join Charlie to discover how your practice or laboratory can benefit from his near 10 years of resin based 3D printing experience, and significantly reduce the headaches and setting the new standard for dental 3D Printing efficiency.

The 3D Virtual Patient For Clinicians and Technicians

One time, not so long ago it was most common to have a set of models and a few photographs and a skilled set of hands would make amazing prosthetics. A dying art. However, now it is possible to merge intra oral scans, facial scans and DICOM images together accurately and dynamically to create the 3D Virtual patient. This talk will discuss the fundamental equipment needed to do this , the methods available now and some applications of the technology.

If you want to be inspired and amazed come to this talk and hands on demonstration.
